The Oak Ridge Philharmonia in the August 2017 Concert.

With twelve featured artists performing, in addition to the full orchestra, you are sure to find a variety of music to enjoy in the free November 18th concert of the Oak Ridge Philharmonia. Danny Brian will be the soloist for the unforgettable Piano Concerto No. 1 by Franz Liszt. Concertmaster Margaret Moore has selected Beethoven’s 5th Violin Sonata, Mvt. 1 for her performance. The lively first movement of Concerto for Flute, Oboe and Bassoon by Antonio Vivaldi will be presented by Barbara Sparks, Cyndi Jeffers, and Cora Nappo. Kimberly Simpkins, Belle James, and Kathryn York will tangle with the Tango, Las Cuatro Estaciones Porteñas by Ástor Piazzolla To add a Mexican flavor, Greg Foertter, Ward Bigler, and Dale Gedcke will play the Chiapanecas Trumpet Trio, as arranged by Raphael Méndez. In addition to conducting the piano concerto, and accompanying the violin and trumpet soloists on piano, Dr. Marcelo Urias will direct the orchestra in a colorful symphonic poem, Les Préludes by Franz Liszt. To thoroughly enjoy these engaging compositions, join the Oak Ridge Philharmonia on Saturday, November 18, 2017 at 2:00 pm, in the Sanctuary of the First Baptist Church of Oak Ridge.
